In the flower- and flag-draped casket, crowned with the British symbols of state and church, lay a queen who shared the gospel to more on the day of her funeral than she did all the days of her long life. If you watched the funeral service, you heard scripture after scripture recited pointing to Christ and his promise of eternal life. And, not only did you and I hear those words, so also did multiple millions of people worldwide in numerous languages. This service’s focus on God’s promise of the resurrection was not without her participation. According to various British ecclesiasticals, she was closely involved in planning her service. Whether Jesus returns tomorrow or thousands of years hence, God’s Word cannot be hindered. In one way or the other the gospel will be taken to the world.
